The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Princess Louise's) grove

In memory of the fallen and those who survived but are not now with us.

700 GLENGARRIED MEN

IN THE HEAT OF THE SAND HOUSES BURNT OUT OF HAND
YOU WILL SEE THEM
IN A TOWN ONCE A MIRE RULED BY VIOLENCE AND FIRE
YOU WILL SEE THEM
OUT OF THE NORTH THE LAW OF THE SCOT
WHO DECIDE WHAT IS AND WHAT IS NOT

CHORUS,
SEVEN HUNDRED GLENGARRIED MEN
HEARD THE CRY COME RINGING DOWN THE GLEN
DINA MIND THE SAND TAK YOUR RIFLE IN YOUR HAND
THE ARGYLLS ARE MOVING AGAIN

AMID SANDBAGS AND WIRE HIT BY TERRORIST FIRE
YOU WILL SEE THEM
WITH A BAYONET AND GUN IN STREETS SCORCHED BY THE SUN
YOU WILL SEE THEM
FROM THE TOWN OF CRATER YOU WILL HEAR THE CRY
YOU MUST LEARN TO LIVE IN PEACE OR LEARN TO DIE

CHORUS

WE WIL NOT FORGET OUR LOSS FIVE MEN BENEATH THE CROSS
YOU WILL SEE THEM
AND ALTHOUGH THESE MEN MAY DIE OURS IS NOTTO REASON WHY
YOU WILL SEE THEM
IN THIS FIGHT THERE IS NO GLORY AND DEATH COMES BY THE RULES
THE LIVES OF HIGHLAND SOLDIERS IN THE HANDS OF BRITISH FOOLS

CHORUS

THO TO ADEN GOES OUR SONG FROM THE ARTIC TO HONG KONG
YOU WILL SEE THEM
AMID JUNGLE HILL OR TOWN AGAINST YELLOW, WHITE OR BROWN
YOU WILL SEE THEM
FOR THIS IS BUT A CHAPTER IN OUR BLOODY HISTORY
FIGHTING FOR OUR FUTURE AND TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY FREE

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

When you go home
Tell them of us and say
For your tomorrow
We gave our today

Mr Gardiner, Colour, always in my thoughts

In starting up this site I should have started with: 20.07.1996 Lt-Col Colin Mitchell. A Commanding Officer who put his men first before politics.

Add trees to this grove

 
Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.

Scots pine against a summer blue sky.
Twinflowers in bloom on pine woodland floor.
